How do I Select the number of records where a certain column is equal to a certain value?

Select Count(where Rating = 5) from Awards as NumberOf5Ratings

SELECT SUM(CASE WHEN Rating = 5 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as NumberOf5Ratings
FROM Awards

or just

SELECT COUNT(*) as NumberOf5Ratings
FROM yourTable
WHERE Rating = 5
